After their end of term ball, Oxford students go punting on the river, fall in and have breakfast.
Several shots of towers in the city of Oxford at dawn. Various shots of undergraduates at the end of their ball; a steel band plays as the students jig about in their ball gowns and dinner jackets (oh dear) - good shots of people who can't dance! Embarrassing scenes as a male student 'pogos' into the air and girls in repulsive puffball dresses kick their feet half-heartedly in a courtyard.
Various shots of the end of the party; a couple sit on a bench, two girls sit on a small merry-go-round while a man spins it slowly round, couples stroll out of marquees and along the street. Nice shots of an empty champagne bottle and broken glasses on the ground; chairs strewn about; a car in the street with a 'No parking' cone on the roof.
Various shots of toffs in evening clothes in punts on the River Cherwell; some sleep, some punt; a couple stroll along the river bank, a punt drifts past a small waterfall. Nice high angle M/S as a punt is pushed over some rollers to the river; the girl in the front stands and lifts her skirt to avoid the splashes. One of the boys in a tailcoat holds onto his punting pole and falls in the river; he is assisted out while one of his cronies in his punt takes a photo. A bearded man wrings out the evening jacket tails of the unfortunate boy, who then puts his foot into a hole in the river bank and falls down.
M/S of some students heading from the riverbank to a pub for breakfast; a couple in a punt eat sandwiches and drink champagne from plastic cups. The students at the Victoria Arms pub raise their champagne glasses for a toast before tucking into their fried breakfasts.
Good footage of rather horsey-looking Oxford students at play. It reminds you of how old young people used to look. Cuts exist - see separate record.
